MCLEAN, Va. – Leading global hospitality company, Hilton (NYSE: HLT), celebrated the 2022 mid-year mark with continued growth momentum in the Caribbean and Latin America (CALA). From Jan. 1 to June 30, 2022, the company welcomed 11 new hotels, growing its CALA portfolio to more than 190 hotels representing nearly 15% of Hilton’s presence outside of the United States. With its aggressive expansion plans, including a pipeline of 105 properties, Hilton’s deep-rooted commitment to development across the region is as strong as ever, as the company expects to open its 200th hotel in CALA by the end of 2022.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to expand Hilton’s footprint in the Caribbean and Latin America, working with exceptional owners to introduce the right brand in the right market to meet the demands of today’s global traveler,” said Juan Corvinos, senior vice president, development, architecture and construction, Caribbean and Latin America, Hilton. “Our plans have led to incredible milestones in the region, from welcoming new all-inclusive and luxury resorts in some of the most sought-after destinations to celebrating first-in-market brands that cater to and attract all types of visitors. We are excited about our momentum and our continued commitment to this dynamic region.”

Throughout the first half of 2022, Hilton opened 11 hotels with more than 2,100 rooms across seven brands and six countries in CALA, bringing its portfolio to more than 190 hotels and resorts with more than 35,000 rooms welcoming guests across 27 countries and territories. During the same time, the company confirmed plans to open another 15 hotels in the second half of 2022, and signed 15 new development deals, bringing its pipeline to 105 projects with nearly 15,750 rooms.
